Uganda Govt fails to account for 31 ‘kidnapped’ persons

There have been several reports of several people, especially opposition supporters whose whereabouts are not known after being picked by suspected security personnel driving numberless drone vehicles from several parts of the country.

Relatives to many of these victims have reported cases of missing persons.

In his statement before parliament about the alleged kidnappings in the country, the internal affairs minister Gen Jeje Odongo said investigations are currently ongoing to trace the 31 people majority of whom are from Kyotera district and Kyebando in Nansana.

He however says they have managed to handle 13 cases and admits that the majority were not kidnapped as alleged but rather were arrested lawfully while some have been charged and released on bail.

These he says include; Muyanja Sulaiman, Ssebaduka Ali Bogere, Twaibu Ddumba, and Babirye Rita among seven who are currently on bail

He adds that four others including Lumu Ronald, Kabaale Benard, Mugarura Ronald and Shafik were not kidnapped but were arrested.

He meanwhile says a one Rogers Galiwango allegedly kidnapped from Kyebando with 10 others resurfaced after 3 days while Fred Kiwananuka is yet to make a statement before police after he was allegedly abandoned in Busunju.
